Subject: Helping Jeanne Choose...
..."I didn't have an excuse, but his attitude was making me miserable!"

A week of driving a hot rod turns Nick into a raving @$$hole?

And where can I buy the hairspray she used, her "windblown look" was FABULOUS!

Great classic film!

She was to weak to stick to the rational and safe thing to do. A good and effective film for its time.

Subject: Dick York = Teenacide
Ahhh! The infamous teenacide movie! Although this film is in so-so condition, it's always great to see it again. I hadnt seen it in quite some time, and I had no idea that Dick York was to blame for what happens.
A lovely girl gets in with the wrong crowd who drive too fast (this is of course a warning against 'fast' people in general), and takes off with Dick York for a 15 minute quickie in his car.
The sexual conocations are numberous in this movie. Excellent essential viewing, and is a MUST SEE on this site!

Subject: Almost Perfect
The repetition of "teenicide" and the casting of Dick York as the tough guy make this one a keeper, but I'm subtracting a star for teasing us with Joanne's disfigurement but not delivering by showing it.

Subject: Teenicide! Everyone's doing it!
Nice, slightly dumb Joanne can't choose between steady nice guy Larry, and hot-rodding Nick (Bewitched's DICK YORK!). Nick's wild driving is the talk of the town... in fact, it's all anyone talks about in this town.

Larry invites Joanne to a party at Casino Lake. On the way there they listen to a DJ talking about "Teenicide... the fine art of killing yourself, and maybe someone else, before you're 20. You do it... with a car!" This gets repeated about a dozen times throughout the short. Larry shows up and talks Joanne into going for a ride around the lake. He's not worried about speeding; his Old Man taught him how to drive, and he's only been arrested three times!

Of course, it all ends in tragedy, and Joanne ends up with a face so disfigured that she can't even go out with Larry (ouch!). She's had her "Last Date."

Great fun, especially watching "Darren" play a bad boy, and the endless repetitions of Teenicide. Watch for your local punk bands to be renaming themselves soon.
